ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of Korean traditional play activities on attitudes of children without disabilities toward children with disabilities. The subjects were two general education classes of 3rd grade and each class had one child with disabilities. The one class was assigned to an experimental group and the other class was designated as a control group. The experimental group was provided with Korean traditional play activities during their physical education time. Meanwhile, the control group participated in their regular physical education curriculum. The intervention was conducted twice a week(50minutes per session) for 5 weeks. Instruments used for pre-test and post-test were adjective scale for measuring cognitive attitudes, affective attitude scale, and activity-preference scale. The differences between pre-tests and post-tests of two groups were analyzed by using an analysis of covariance. Results showed that there were statistically significant differences between two groups in the changes of cognitive, affective, and behavioral attitudes. However, no significant differences were found in the social life area of behavioral attitudes. In conclusion, Korean traditional paly activities were effective in improving on attitudes of children without disabilities toward children with disabilities. Implications for research and practice were discussed.
